Alive And Brel
The finest songs from the iconic master of the modern chanson, Jacques Brel, come to life when this trio of singers perform their cabaret revue, Alive and Brel. Brel’s songs, famed for their emotional power and ironic wit, have been recorded by international stars ranging from Frank Sinatra and Dusty Springfield to Marc Almond and David Bowie. Alive and Brel will present such classics as If You Go Away / Ne Me Quitte Pas, Jacky and Amsterdam. The stories they tell have been likened to miniature films, laced with dark and passionate observations which paint a tableau of imperfect humanity. Brel’s songs are guaranteed to bring a smile to your lips or a tear to your eye.
A pleasant surprise package... very capable of depicting Brel’s catalogue. The blending of the three voices was particularly pleasing and gave the performance originality. - Stage Talk Maga
